About Greg and Paula

The owners are resident in England.

Greg and Paula purchased this barn in 2016

Why Greg and Paula chose Laparrouquial

The greatest appeal is the spectacular countryside and tranquility whilst not being isolated. The location affords easy access to many areas, activities and villages of interest.

What makes this barn unique

Excellent view from the property and secluded, private pool.

For lovers of the countryside, just beyond the house, the lane becomes a track which takes you on a stroll down to the river with fabulous views. Quiet footpaths lead in all directions from the hamlet and the area is particularly rich in wildlife, and wild flowers which attract many rare butterflies. Birds of prey are a common sight and sound over the valley below.

Rural retreat, but lots to do in the area.

  • 5 of 5

We had a really enjoyable stay at Greg and Paula's. From a practical point of view, the barn was well-equipped and well-situated for a variety of holiday activies, from walking, kayaking, exploring the surrounding villages, or just relaxing by the pool. It was unusually hot during our first week, and we were all grateful for the comfortable beds and fans, and especially for the swimming pool. We visited several local fromageries and vignerons, as well as markets in St Antonin, Laguepie and Carmaux, and longer trips further afield. What made this holiday special was the silence in the evenings and the dramatic skyscapes as the weather changed.

Schöne und frisch renovierte Scheune mit guter Ausstattung

  • 4 of 5

Wir verbrachten Anfang Juli 2017 2 Wochen in diesem Ferienhaus. Es ist sehr schön renoviert und besitzt eine gute Ausstattung. Die Poolliegen und Sonnenschirme sind Brand neu und von bester Qualität.

Insgesamt sind die Schlaf- und Badezimmer gut ausgestattet. Der Außenbereich ist frisch angelegt und sehr gepflegt.

Owner's Response: Good evening Jonas. Thankyou for your kind comments and it is good to know that you appreciated the improvements we have made to the house since we purchased it last year. I thank you for looking after our house and for leaving it in a very tidy state after your holiday. We are continuing to improve the house and would love to welcome you and your family again should you wish to travel to this part of France again. All the best for the rest of the summer Kind regards Greg and Paula

Just past the entrance to the house, the road becomes a track which is ideal for taking a stroll down to the river. The house is only 15 minutes drive from the shops, bars, restaurants and Saturday market at the picturesque hill town of Cordes-sur-Ciel. At the heart of the famous Bastides Region, Cordes is famous for its historic buildings, medieval festivities and summer music festival. Cordes overlooks the tranquil, rural valley of the Cerou River.

To the west, about 10 minutes away is the village of Laguepie with its medieval castle and twin rivers of Aveyron and Viaur. This is a wonderfully French little village with local amenities such as doctor, bakers, grocers, post office, bar and a Sunday farmers' market.

Fifteen minutes further west is the small mediaeval town of St. Antonin Noble Val with its impressive views of the Aveyron Gorges, great canoeing, Sunday morning market and other facilities including restaurants, cinema and bike hire.

A little further afield Albi, the Tarn's capital, is a great day out whether visiting the magnificent cathedral or the Toulouse Lautrec Museum, or merely wandering through the cobble stone back streets or sitting at one of the many bars in the centre.

Wine lovers with enjoy visiting Gaillac, the oldest wine growing region in France, where they can visit numerous vineyards for tastings,
